I hope that this is not violating any rules..........That is not my intent.
As some of you know, I am a grad student and my final project for my degree is focusing on ILADS based Lyme education and the correlation between ILADS knowledge and patient diagnosis and treatment.
I have developed the first of several surveys that will be used for my research project. The first one focuses on how Lyme patients are diagnosed and treated prior to finding a LLMD. All responses are completely confidential. I do not ask for any identifying information at any point and would never include any personal information. You do not need to provide a screen name or register. This is solely for educational/research purposes and I have no commercial interest.
The hypothesis of my study is that patients see marked improvement of serious symptoms upon being diagnosed and treated via ILADS guidelines. My college is intending on helping me publish this study. This seems very overwhelming right now for me, but I think it will be a great project for the chronic Lyme community and I am happy to be focusing on it.
If you would like to fill out the survey I would really appreciate your time. Ideally, I would like to have at least 10 respondents per survey. The first one can be accessed by clicking on this link.keylymepie.webs.com/research-study-surveys
If you would prefer an email copy of the form, I'd be happy to send you one as well. I can also send you the resulting statistics of the surveys when they are available if you desire.
